Farming Technology

In farming of Atlantic Salmon; fish welfare, productivity and economics go hand in hand.  As long as it is provided with good water quality, high biosecurity and first-class feed, the fish thrive and grow.

Proximar uses proven AquaMaof-technology to ensure excellent and stable growth conditions through natural and low complex solutions, such as settlers, gravity-based aeration and trickling biofilters. This leads to low electricity consumption and•reduced probability of equipment failure due to few mechanical components.

The production facilities are separated into independent modules and over-pressurized, ensuring low risk of diseases and contamination.
